In 1915, Turkish Government Leaders set in motion to expel and Massacre Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire, most Sources say that an Estimate of 2,000,000 Armenians were at the time of the Massacre, in the Early 1920s, when the Massacres and Exile Concluded, an Estimate of some 1.5 Million Armenians were Killed with many forced to leave the Country.
World War I
In 1914, Young Turks entered WWI on the side of Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Military leaders began to argue that the Armenians were Traitors because they thought that Armenia would win Independence if the Allies were Victorious, this Argument Went, the Armenians were longing to fight for the Enemy. As the War Infuriated, Armenians coordinated volunteer battalions to help the Russians fight against the Turks in the Caucasus region. These Events, and General Turkish suspicion of the Armenian People, led the Turkish Government to push for the "Elimination" of the Armenians from the War Zones along the Eastern Front.
